Chicago (ap) — Adam Dunn hit a three-run homer in the first inning and the Chicago White Sox handed Jon Lester his first loss of the season with a 6-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.

Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez added consecutive RBI doubles in the second as Chicago took advantage of an ineffective Lester (6-1) to earn its fifth win in seven games in the opener of an eight-game homestand. The White Sox scored each of their runs with two outs.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a two-run homer for the Red Sox, who had won five in a row. Saltalamacchia made a bid for a second two-run shot, but Dayan Viciedo brought in his drive on the warning track in left-center with the White Sox clinging to a 6-4 lead in the seventh.

Indians 10, Mariners 6

Cleveland — Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Cleveland, twice revived by Seattle’s fielding errors, completed a four-game sweep.

Gomes, who also homered in the second, drove a 3-2 pitch from Charlie Furbush (0-3) over the wall in left, giving the Indians their fifth straight win and third walk-off over the Mariners in four days.

Athletics 9, Rangers 2

Arlington, Texas — Seth Smith homered and scored three times, Bartolo Colon pitched seven strong innings for his first win in nearly a month and Oakland beat Texas.

Colon, who turns 40 on Friday, gave up two runs on six hits and struck out three. It was the first win for Colon (3-3) since April 23 at Boston.

Yankees 6, Orioles 4 (10)

Baltimore — Vernon Wells doubled in the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning and New York hit four solo homers in a win over the Orioles, extending Baltimore’s losing streak to six games.

Blue Jays 7, Rays 5

Toronto — R.A. Dickey won his second straight start, Edwin Encarnacion hit a tiebreaking, bases-loaded double in the seventh inning, and Toronto beat Tampa Bay.

Astros 6, Royals 5

Houston — Matt Dominguez hit a three-run homer and Jason Castro added a solo shot to give Houston a win over Kansas City.

National League

Interleague

Braves 5, Twins 1

Atlanta — Julio Teheran pitched 81∕3 strong innings, Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer and Atlanta won its fourth straight game with a victory over struggling Minnesota.

Teheran (3-1) gave up five hits, one run — Josh Willingham’s homer in the ninth — and one walk. He struck out four, throwing 80 of his 123 pitches for strikes.

Cory Gearrin earned his first career save by retiring pinch-hitter Oswaldo Arcia on a flyout.

Minnesota has lost six straight.

The previous longest career outing for Teheran was seven innings, a mark he reached in a no-decision April 29 against Washington and a May 9 victory at San Francisco.

After rallying in late innings to win three straight from the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend, Atlanta jumped on Twins starter Kevin Correia (4-4) early.
